Howell Public Schools offers
At-Risk services to students who are academically under achieving. These
students are identified by the school's At-Risk teacher and aides using
state assessment scores, classroom grades and teacher recommendations.
At Risk servicing is then provided through our Reading Coach and aides pushing in to our English encore support classes to offer academic tutoring. The high school also offer evening credit recovery courses to
allow students a second opportunity to receive credit. This allows
students to remain on track for graduation with their class. At-Risk
services are paid for with state funding (31a money).
Elective Core Support Courses
school has developed elective core support courses, similar to the
middle school's Encore Support Courses. One example is called Strategic
Literacy. This course mirrors the English Language Arts high school
content expectations and allows students a second opportunity during the
day to strengthen their ELA skills.
Success small group adolescent support services are provided through a
federal grant to all Livingston County schools. A Project Success
Counselor works side-by-side with a HPS counselor, one day a week, in
each our middle schools to provide a menu of small groups from which
students may choose to participate. Topics include: Coping Skills, Divorce, Insight and Teen Choices (click
link to see group outline). Students must obtain parent permission to
miss instruction in an elective class for the 8 weekly sessions. Please
speak to a counselor if you are interested in this service.

Student Intervention Teams (S.I.T)
Student Intervention Team may be requested by a parent, student,
teacher, counselor or administrator. The purpose of the team is to
review student academic and/or behavior concerns and then create a plan
for success. The student is monitored for progress (using academic
and/or behavior data) and encouraged for a minimum of 9 weeks. Students
take ownership in their plan, their data, and their achievements.
Counselors facilitate the S.I.T. process and should be contacted by
anyone interested in getting a S.I.T. initiated.
